Valentia Night Revive Retinol Serum Review

Valentia Night Revive Retinol Serum Review

I found this milky white #retinolserum to be quite nice! The very word retinol can set alarms off for someone with sensitive skin like mine. I was very mindful of reading the instructions and when it instructed not to use every night, I listened! I started every other night and switched over to every third night. This product is going to last me forever because of how little you need to use to see results! Just a scant dropperful is all you need to cover your face and neck. It sinks in immediately, leaving no residue of skin. After a few days use I felt that my skin had a more even texture and a nice healthy glow to it. AWESOME! As my readers know, Valentia is way up there on my list of favorite brands. Why? Because of the results! Because it is made by women for women. Because it is all natural and organic. #nuffsaid! But I also have to mention that it is beautifully packaged and reasonably priced for such a luxurious line of products.

skin care, anti aging,

Note! I love to follow-up my retinol treatments with Valentia Ultra Plumping Hydration Mask. This jiggley golden mask works wonders and feels super cooling and moisturizing on my skin. See my review here.

Learn About the Brand From The Brand…

The Roman Goddess of healing, Valentia, relied on nature’s gifts to heal the citizens of Umbria. Whether matriarchs seeking to maintain their youthful look or farmers seeking help for sun damaged skin, Valentia used berries, herbs, barks and other natural ingredients. We also rely on all natural ingredients due to their protective, preventative and corrective powers.

Just like our namesake, Valentia Skin Care products have been formulated with natural and organic cosmetic ingredients that will repair and protect the skin.

After performing extensive research into what skin care customers find most important, we found an overwhelming demand for skin care that is natural, free of toxins and paraben-free. Natural ingredients with an organic base have proven most effective at repairing skin damaged by sun or wind, preventing signs of aging such as wrinkles, dark spots, and reversing the effects of oxidative stress on the skin.

The Cheese & Spice Market At The Shoppes At East Wind

The Cheese And Spice Market

This weekend I attended the grand opening of The Shoppes At East Wind on the North Shore of Eastern Long Island. I was very excited to see my friend’s new shop The Cheese and Spice Market! The shop is as beautiful as it is tasty! It has a warm feeling as soon as you enter and it was packed with customers too! It was great to see the family working their dream together. They have a huge variety of artisianal cheeses, a wall of spices that you can feel free to  experience and same goes for a ton of delicious looking teas! We bought a few cheeses that I can’t wait to try and I look forward to a trip back there to spend more time and explore all of the assorted items. I see a great big successful future for this unique and delicious shop! I was so happy to see Patty’s dream come to life, very happy for her!

“I was inspired by some great chefs, and encouraged by family, friends and former customers in the restaurants where I worked for over 25 years, to start my own business.  My love of cheese and for cooking with the very best and freshest of products and spices, together with my passion for creating exquisite displays of food, led me to my decision to open a Cheese & Spice Market.

I am eager to share my knowledge and excitement about the diverse line of imported, domestic and local cheeses, loose savory herbs and spices, and other gourmet products that the market carries.  We will fill the everyday needs of customers, shopping for themselves or others, during holidays or any time of the year.  Our cheese plates, platters and gift baskets are perfect for individuals, private parties and corporate events.  Visitors exploring the North Fork wine region and farms can find cheese, crackers, baguettes and other goodies to fill their own picnic baskets as they start their journey.

I am determined to please customers by sharing my passion, providing personal attention, and offering the best quality products and service.  We want our customers to have fun, try different cheeses and products that they may not be familiar with, and to learn how spice can enhance the flavors of food.”  by Patty Kaczmarczyk

 

 

Madonna & Company – A Boutique & Beauty Bar

Madonna & Co – Boutique & Beauty Bar: Recipe for a Unique Shopping Experience

Boutique & Beauty Bar, madonnaandco, shopping, nyc

There’s always a risk when you create something new. Will people like it? Will it succeed? Will it be worth it?

When Madonna and Co. re-launched in Mid-town East Side, (bordering on the Upper-East Side) from our former location in Soho, we emerged as a different entity, incorporating what made us great in the past, but with new additions. We were more.

In addition to our new location on 60th street, we opened a full service salon and beauty bar within the store, bringing to a life a completely unique shopping experience.

Fashion and Beauty: An Innovative Convergence

The inclusion of the beauty bar inside our boutique converged the worlds of fashion and beauty in a way that’s never been done. For the first time, women have the opportunity to receive comprehensive beautification in a one-stop shop.

Bringing together fashion and beauty as we have done was not without risk, but innovation always involves a leap of faith. New creations don’t arise from the ether. Innovation comes as the result of unique combinations, whether it be a boutique and a beauty bar, our designs and exclusive designer capsule collections, or glam and chic, etc. Creating one-of-a-kind experiences from unique combinations is what Madonna & Co. has always done.

Our willingness to break barriers and defy categorization is what makes our selection of fashion and accessories so vibrant and original. All of the clothing in our store has been designed and hand picked from collections around the world. By dealing with the designer themselves and direct with our factories, we are able to offer luxury items at affordable prices.

The vast selection of unique affordable clothing featured in our shop is what makes us the best NYC boutique operating today. By shopping at Madonna & Co., you receive the peace of mind in knowing that you’ll never cross paths with someone wearing the same outfit; one-of-a-kind, wearable and affordable clothes for independent woman is what we do.

Community of Independent Women

While the ability to get a full-service haircut, styling, and complete makeup treatment in the same place where you find all of your exclusive designs and luxury clothing is extremely convenient, the impetus behind opening the beauty bar had more to do with community than convenience.

We wanted to create a space where independent women from all walks of life and ages could come together to shop, socialize, and express their femininity. We imagined a world where the social aspects of a salon coalesced with the activity of shopping. Our love of fashion and beauty led us to invent a world that unites these spheres and offers women a place to have fun and engage in a dialogue about fashion and style.

upper east side, shopping, nyc

At Madonna & Co. we believe in creating a personal style. We see it as our job to assist women in crafting their own individual aesthetic. Every woman that walks through our doors is a unique assemblage of beliefs, values, and traits. Her aesthetic preferences are a function of her entire worldview and identity.

Creating the perfect outfit involves a translation of sorts. Our aim is to help the women who shops in our store translate their core identity into an aesthetic that embodies and represents who they really are and how they feel. Every woman who comes into our store receives a unique treatment that results in a unique style – whether her preferences lean towards glam, chic, posh, or edgy.

The beauty bar allows us to take the crafting of a unique style one step further. In addition to helping women find their dream new fashions, our stylists bring years of experience and knowledge to the table, assisting women realize their dream hairstyle!

We offer every customer a free consultation at the salon and beauty bar before her first appointment. This consultation gives us the chance to learn about what the specific customer likes about her hair or makeup styling and what she’d like to change. Our stylists and make-up artists will then present some possible ways to enhance the aspects of her appearance that the customer would like to shake up.

While our head stylist is an expert in all types of hair, her specialty is curly hair and we call her “The Curly Hair Expert.” Our custom line of No Frizz Miracle Gel – designed specifically for curly hair – mirrors this focus.

Exuviance Overnight Recovery Masque

Exuviance Overnight Recovery Masque

The best and most exciting thing about this masque is the fact that you use it overnight! #OVERNIGHTRECOVERY! There is no waiting around for it to dry! I don’t know about you, but I cannot always find the 30 minutes to apply a masque and wait for it to dry, wash it off and then moisturizer. Exuviance Overnight Recovery Masque is a game changer! I just hop in bed (ahhhhhhhh, best part of my day!!) apply the masque with a gentle massaging motion then seal it with moisturizer and go to sleep! How awesome is that, getting the job done while I #sleeponit! Couldn’t be better!

I was so excited to be given the opportunity to receive the overnight recovery masque. As soon as I opened the jar I knew it was special. Inside I found a aquamarine colored jiggly water-gel! It smelled nice and felt cool and soothing to the touch. With ingredients like Lilac Cell Culture Extract it has to be good! I actually found it was pleasurable to apply it to my skin. It took very little product to cover my face and neck and I massaged the remainder into my hands, I figured it could only be a good thing! The jar of masque will last a long time. It sunk in quickly and then I layered my usual nighttime moisturizer right over it. I had my concerns that the combo may cause a pastey type feeling on my face but it did not. It felt very natural. After a minute I noticed a slight tightening effect and then I fell asleep!! In the morning my skin felt smooth and I proceeded to wash it off. It’s amazing that I was able to sleep away daily damage and wake to beautiful, revitalized skin. I loved the after effect, my skin felt moist and fine lines seemed plumped! I can’t wait to try it again! It is recommended to use 2-3 times a week or when ever your skin feels stressed. I will be using it a lot! You should too! It is suitable for all types of skin. Check it out and purchase yours here. You will not regret it 🙂
